I love my 300. I want to put that out there. She's fun, she's my baby. But lord, she just ain't always around, and you know that's when I fall. I can't help myself at all. I'm getting whiskey bent and hell bound. I kind of want a backup, plated 4 stroke. My riding buddy and best friend sometimes makes me jealous with his velvet smooth 350xcf. I'm not sure I want to drop another 9k on a bike so I'll be going used. My real question is how much of a pig the DRZ400 and KTM500's are on the trail? Besides the convenience of short in town jaunts these are trail intended bikes. What are your opinions/experiences?
